Useful products, beautiful design, great functionality; happy to work with Bodum once again for their 2016 image ad campaigns, new website and print catalogs.
The joy to be selected again by Archive for ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2016/17! I was planning on working as a lifeguard in Hawaii, but it got postponed by the jury of Archive. Sending my sincere gratitude to all who have collaborated with me over the years to create beautiful work, and most importantly, shared a good time.
It’s such a pleasure to do editorial work for Martha Stewart Living Magazine! Together with terrific food stylists Sarah Carey and Greg Lofts, we shot two columns of ‘Food & Gatherings’ – Classic Biscotti and Scalloped Potatoes, for back to back issues.

We continued our series with Maker’s Mark for their iconic Maker’s 46 Bourbon Whiskey. Since it is only made during the winter months, we’ve decided to shoot it on a frozen lake. In the studio. With real ice. Well, maybe it’s easier to understand if you watch the video below…

Very happy to announce that my work was selected again for the Communication Arts Photography Annual this year as well as for the London-based Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards. Couldn’t be happier to be among such a select few talented photographers. I’ll let the lovely blog post by my agent do the talking for now…
Craftsmanship. Not a word usually used when drinking Tequila. In this case however, craftsmanship was not only evident in this smooth Tequila, but also in the crystal clear ice made by Okamoto Custom Ice Studio. “If you have such a quality spirit like Dragones, to dilute that with conventional ice is not ideal,” according to Okamoto. “Exceptional ice allows for minimal dilution and to bring out the purest, cleanest flavor when serving Casa Dragones Blanco on the rocks.”
Working on a new campaign with an agency (Mouth NY) and a contributor so dedicated, is a real pleasure. Since we prefer shooting with real ice and real ingredients, he turned out to be the perfect collaborator. You can check out the incredible ice sculptures made by Okamoto studio here -> http://www.okamotostudionyc.com/

Lovely multi day shoot with agency Weber Shandwick for all the new point of sale and in-store displays for Ragu Spaghetti & Pasta Sauces here in the United States. Space28 was the perfect work environment with the most beautiful & consistent daylight any food photographer could hope for. Grateful to my incredible team & crew who made it a wonderful and pleasant experience, shooting 25 recipes in three days and getting it all done in time with a smile on all our faces. See our behind the scenes footage here:

An injection pen for type 2 diabetes treatments, with a needle as thin as a hair. Definitely an interesting challenge to light and to accomplish what was put forth by CDM: ‘So thin, patients can’t feel it – photographed elegantly, with the incredibly thin needle gauge apparent but still visible to the naked eye.’ Prop Styling by Alex Niki.
As a photographer, there’s hardly anything more rewarding than to be hired and given total freedom by an art director. The trust expressed in this gesture is always so invigorating. Thanks Seung! For our page opener and image series on ‘Edible Flowers’ for New You Magazine, I could count on absolutely beautiful, serendipitous food styling by Victoria Granof and for our story for ‘Beauty Now’, prop. stylist Thom Driver did an exceptional job. I am looking forward to shooting with all of them again soon.
